I went to high school with Jim in the late 60's. Later in life our paths crossed again while working for Safeway. Myself and my husband knew him well through work. He was a good guy and will be missed by many. Our condolences to Jimmy's family and friends. RIP my friend Sincerely Candyce & Don Hawkins - Posted by: Candyce Hawkins (Friend and co worker) on: Apr 05, 2022

Such a tragic loss for Ellen, Bill, Jim's adult children, and many other people. My condolences to all of them. - Posted by: Mike Stimpson (Cousin) on: Apr 03, 2022
As a store manager I worked with Jim for many years and promoted him to an assistant manager when the powers to be disagreed. Jim was a person that was very capable at his duties and responsibilities. Through his hard work became a Store Manager. I was honoured to give the toast to the bide at their wedding. Jim was like family. Rest in peace my friend! - Posted by: Terry & Adele Kolisnyk (Working Friend ) on: Apr 03, 2022
